Joe Biden in Arvada: Mitt Romney's a liar, doesn't believe in average Americans

Categories: News, Politics

Biden also painted Romney and the Republican Party as ultra-conservative and the totally wrong choice for women, even if Romney and Ryan are trying to present themselves as more moderate in the final days of the race.

"They're now running from the basic building blocks of this new Republican Party," said Biden, adding of the GOP, "This is a different breed of cat, as my dad would say."

Biden repeatedly stamped his now-recognizable "malarkey" term on some of the latest attack ads from the Romney camp, arguing that Romney and Ryan are trying to "scare the living devil out of people" with their dishonest, misleading, inaccurate advertising.

He later pivoted back to Romney's infamous comments on the 47 percent, caught on a hidden camera, as a way to emphasize that Obama is someone people can trust.

"The measure of your character is not what you do when people are looking. It's what you do when you think no one is looking," Biden said, later adding, "Presidential elections are first and foremost about character. Character is the single most important ingredient a president must possess, and it's clear who has it and who does not have it. My God, Obama -- he has character!"

Voters, Biden said, are asking themselves, "Who can we trust?"

The answer, he said, is clear.

"Why would they do this stuff? I really mean it, because they're not bad men. Why would they do this?" Biden said, speaking of Republican policies that he says are very hostile to the middle class and much of America. "It's because, I truly believe, if you look at all their policies, the fundamental dividing line between the president...and [Mitt Romney]...is I don't think they have confidence in average Americans. I really mean it. I think they really do believe, unless the enlightened, the wealthy, the powerful are absolutely able to have their hands on the wheel and direct everything, that we're in trouble.

"We are determined to level the playing field.... That's the history of the journey of this country.... It has never, ever, ever been a good bet to bet against the American people."

He shouted, over loud cheers, "Never, never, never, never!"

Supporter Joy Pisciotta, 57, said she wished every undecided voter or Romney supporter had watched Biden's speech.

"It was one of the best I've heard," she said. "He really put Romney and Ryan into perspective -- that they are telling lies. And he did it with class."

Pisciotta, who is retired and lives in Arvada, added, "With a rally like this, he really is preaching to the choir. But if the American public could hear what he was saying...I really think they'd change their minds."

plagiarist Joe Biden can't string a sentence together without lying so it's ironic they use that word so frequently.

I've stopped listening to anything Republican candidates say. All they ever do is lie. They couldn't speak the truth to save their lives. The GOP has become the party of pathological liars.

Biden makes the Irish proud. Smart, funny, and irrefutable. That's why people attack him personally, because they have no response to his substantive conclusion that Romney is a lying, flip-flopping salesman with no conviction whatsoever. Hey Romney supporters, give us one example where Romney has maintained a consistent position; and "I really, really, really, want to be President" doesn't count.

Joe Biden is a ticking time (and also a gaffe) bomb, ready to explode whenever he opens his big mouth. He lacks the mental balance and intellect to be a heartbeat away from becoming our President. For that reason alone, Obama must NOT get anyone's vote for a second term. Not to mention the other obvious reasons for NOT voting the Obama ticket:    monumental failure of Obama's first term, disastrous economic situation of the country, financial debt Obamama has incurred, NO viable plan for the next 4 years (more of the same failed policies) & for being an incompetent Commander-in-Chief (Benghaze - need I say more?). How can so many Americans be blind to these obvious FACTS. Blinded by their unconditional devotion to Obama, they are willing to destroy this country by re-electing him, and in doing so destroy their own futures. Come on people, see the light and wake-up before its too late.

The Mormon Church condones and approves of LYING -- it's part of their church doctrine!

Obama Intellectual Dishonesty, Example No.1:  In his September interview with 60 Minutes he said that 10% of the deficit increase since 2009 is his, and 90% is Bush's. At the time, he takes full, unqualified credit for "getting OBL", while giving Bush absolutely no credit for setting up the procedures in 2002 for operations that resulted in the kill, which is also an expression of Obama's ingratitude. In truth, all Obama did was not interfere with or stop the ongoing Bush OBL protocols and investigations. If I had the interest, I could also show you where in a 2012 campaign speech (May?) Obama said, "none of the U.S. debt is mine." No objective thinker would believe such irrational statements.

Hey Joe, Either Ringling Bros. or Barnum & Bailey will hire you back next year, but you have to bring your old Bozo custom with you.

 @genesis667 Well sometimes you need to sink to the level of your opponents to battle 'em. Take the beam out of your own eye before seeing to the splinter in your brother's.
